My family would like to take a train from Venice to Florence on Sat., June 22nd. I am still waiting for train schedules and prices to be loaded, but in looking at earlier schedules I think we might have to either take the train from Venezia SL and change at Venezia (10 min change time) or just go straight to Venezia Mestre to catch the train and avoid the hassle of the train change.
We are trying to catch the early train at 7:19 am and arrive in Florence by 9:30 am.
On a Saturday, what would be our best option for getting from our apartment in the Dorsoduro to Venezia SL and from Dorsoduro to Mestre. Also, how much time should we allow for travel and time at the train station if we have prepurchased tickets?
